MADE TO MEASURE
We recommend that you do not round your measurements up or down to adjust your fit based on the silhouette of the item as it’s displayed on the site. Trust us – our team understands the cut and pattern of our styles inside and out, so you’ll always get the best results if you provide your exact measurements as they are. We also welcome an email from you with any special sizing or styling instructions for your order.
Before you start:
- Keep your tape measure level and close, and don’t pull it too tight.
- If possible, have a friend or family member measure you – it’s more accurate!
- Be sure to measure over the undergarments you plan to wear when you wear the item
